Things I love and Hate About Monsoon

Hey,

How’s your week going on???  Mine is a hectic one. Long day at work is not allowing me to spend much time in mygirlypedia. sob sob

But, I strongly believe that we need to do those things,  which makes you feel happy that you are alive. I love blogging, shopping and makeup. And of course few minutes of me time. What about you???

While riding back home in the rain, I was just thinking what I really love about monsoon. And what I don’t.

Read on to know what makes me happy and what annoys me in monsoon.

What I like,

  • Greenery

With the first rain itself, all the grass, plants and trees starts getting greener.  These green mountains are so soothing to our eyes.

  • The fragrance of soil

I love the fragrance (I’m not using the word smell here, purposely) of soil when the rain droplets kiss mother earth for the first time…!!!

  • Bike rides

I love it when rain droplets fall on me. It makes me feel light and melts away all the negativity around me.

  • Rainbows

The kid in me, still jumps with happiness when she sees the rainbows.

  • Pleasant sleeps

In summers, no matter with what speed the fan is rotating, you won’t get that pleasant sleep. I love hiding myself under couple of blankets and surrendering myself to sweet dreams, while listening to the sound of falling rain droplets. *best music *

  • Hot food/beverage

Wow…  Sitting in the balcony, munching your favorite home made hot food and sipping hot coffee/tea. *heaven on earth *

  • Music

I love listening to rain related songs while watching or getting drenched in rain. When you have the actual rain with you you can feel the lyrics more. **bollywood freak* *drama queen **

  • Nostalgia

1

Everyone has their own set of childhood memories when it comes to monsoon. Buying monsoon footwear, protecting bag and notebooks from rain by covering them in polythene bags. I used to always forget or misplace umbrellas in schools. If it wasn’t raining while leaving from school, I used to forget umbrellas there. Mom’s question “did you forget something?”  used to make me think of all the mischief I had done in that last week. Even after getting ‘reminder beatings’  from mom, I continued ‘mission misplacing umbrella’ . After all its rains duty to remind me of its existence and my umbrella.  haha and of course making paper boats and getting drenched while trying to make it sail was the best childhood memories. Isn’t it???

  • Monsoon sales

Happiest season for shopaholics…!!! ‘Sales’ ahhh what a magical word it is..!!!

What we don’t like,

  • Riding in cities

587524-monsoon-pti

When you are riding and tire of the vehicle moving ahead sprinkles that dirty water from road. Ewww….

  • Public transportation

MMRDA-smartcard

There will be someone with stinking clothes or footwear. They are enough to hold our breath till death. And please don’t let me start with traffic. banging head

  • Clothes drying – Forever task

clothesline

It takes like days for even a piece of cloth to get dried completely. No matter how long it takes, we have to dry it because we know those clothes which are not dried properly, stinks sooo bad. *suffocating *

  • Diseases

There are so many diseases caused by water and weather change. *Aaakshuuuu… *

  • Carrying umbrellas or rain coats

Along with your usual baggage, you need to carry those wet umbrellas and rain coats. *phewww *

  • Are you one of those who were spectacles??

Oh God save you. You need to have a spectacles with wipers to survive outdoors in the monsoon. weep weep

  • Rain reminds us about all leakages in the house

  • Saving yourself from getting wet is next to impossible

No matter how much you are covered, at least cuffs of your pants do get wet.

  • So are your vehicles

Vehicles give us so much trouble in monsoon. Sometimes they don’t start, sometimes in the middle of the road,  they stop. All thanks to water droplets which get inside them. grrhhh
